So few know the name of the man who sang ‘jesus blood never failed me yet’
because it’s everywhere as a Gavin Bryars peace
nonetheless the hold omeless man’s song
is probably the best transmit of the concept
of Jesus eternal blood, which philosophically
could exist (or be something else)
(as sacriligious as that is for me to say, as a clinical atheist mutlispecies radar animal)
Religion’s been awesome, though it’s never shown any known use
in my own thinking per se, it’s accrued knowledge, and they set out
broad talking points for humanity along with civil governments
and writers and activists and the pure voices of real truth that come up
Civilization’s a bit of a hatchet though
the enforcement of the meaning of wealth and power: Civilization
come down on the wrong side of money and the preferences of power
and life can become quite wholly difficult for a lot of people,
for no reason on them, immense pressure on them, often forever.
Like by the time they’re 9, beset with problems an adult couldn’t solve.
Money and power are a million per cent enforced
and then religion makes it all seem good and right or okay somehow
with effortful resistance and endless hard work to literally make it some better
So I suppose is like taking vows and then attempting to live them
instead of just thinking exactly what you think 100% of the time
of everything in the world. Seems so much simpler, than vows.
And vows go down the road of memory, real life. Relationships that don’t work out
Churches that turn out to be bad. Gotta be ready for everything, getting born.
Just be me, and think what I think.
Jesus Blood, mystical substance? Easily could be.
There’s all kinds of unexplained really good things
in the world. Perfect feelings that come over you
and suddenly you can think in your whole
ultimate feeling good self, all the best strengths,
all the best positives, your full happiness
Thats the place to be.
